Orange chicken

Even though this dish has all the qualities of being a “most wanted” by Indian palettes, the origin is from far away land. That too, a mix of American and Chinese flavors. Indian Chinese restaurants may not serve this dish for reason like, Orange being a seasonal fruit,prices vary through the year.A good news for vitamin counters as this dish contains a lot of vitamin C as fresh orange juice is used in the preparation generously.Quick and easy preparation style …Great taste! Enjoy!
